All the latest Silvermont/Haswell buzz you see today were set in motion within Intel 3 or 4 years ago. Yes, Otellini did not respond to the mobile market fast enough 10 years ago. No, Krzanich could not take the full credit for Intel's today winning products.
"What excitement has he created that wasn't worked on for two years under Otellini, who presided over a lost decade, market capitalization-wise?"
[Hilarious how you attempt to take credit from Krzanich and keep it from Otellini at the same time. Otellini and Krzanich both deserve credit for the development of FinFET, which has brought us to the tipping point and the end of the ARM era. Intel's roadmap is superb, the pipeline is full and ARM's fabrication is fading to black. Your criticism, as usual, is a puny and mean-spirited thing...]
The first thing Brian Krzanich said to shareholders:
"I’m deeply honored to be Intel’s sixth CEO and really to be given the opportunity to lead what I think is the best company on the planet. And so, as shareholders, I also want to thank you for showing up this morning and having interest in again what I believe is the best company on the planet."
I love fanatics. And it takes a fanatic to continue the almost mystical commitment to Moore's Law, their magnificent obsession.
